Read about me and the equipment I use

I am a photographer in Bishop Auckland, County Durham and consider myself to be a professional photographer who enjoys the challenge of capturing the perfect image for any given project.

My main aim as a photographer is to gather a wide selection of stock photographs to help clients obtain images for personal and business use.  Subject areas include location, product, commercial, pet, wildlife and special event photography.  Projects usually take place in the area of Bishop Auckland, County Durham, although I do occasionally venture outside the area in the hope of expanding my ever increasing library of stock images.  In addition to my interest in photography, I also have a strong interest in education, website design and digital imaging.

I am a qualified teacher and have an up to date enhanced disclosure.  Having a 'Teaching' background helps me meet the needs of individuals, groups of people (students, clubs, etc.), businesses & small organisations in a professional, safe and understanding way.
